Facts not Fiction:
Spot Bad Science Reporting in the News and Media
January 18, 4-5pm PST
Science is ever evolving with new discoveries, technology and research, but with the speed that information is spread by the news cycle and social media, oftentimes science can get oversimplified or sensationalized in order to get views. In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to spot bad science reporting and misinformation and practice identifying and evaluating credible sources. You’ll leave with ideas, teaching tips and ready-to-use resources to use in your STEM classroom.
Educators in K-12 will gain the skills and confidence to successfully incorporate media literacy and media production into your teaching—whether you work with students or other teachers!
